Ellen Ochoa fourth grade music classes are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month while learning about Rondo Form. Students in Sam Loney’s fourth grade music class learned to dance the "la rapsa," a Mexican dance that features Mariachi music.
Students learned about Mariachi music from Mexico, then learned a dance from the Veracruz region of Mexico. Students also learned that the dance was in Rondo form, or ABACA, where the A section of the dance is repeated several times during the dance.
